Weather Safety

It’s great to prepare for extreme weather conditions, like snowstorms and heat waves, in advance.

  • Stay stocked up on food, prescriptions, and other daily essentials. If you need help accessing food and medical supplies, contact your Resident Services Coordinator.

  • If you drive, make sure that your car is filled with gas

  • In icy conditions, be cautious to avoid falls and accidents. Wear shoes with traction and use walking sticks if needed for extra stability.

  • When possible, avoid going out when there is snow or ice.

  • DO NOT space heaters. Space heaters are not allowed at Bellwether because they are a fire risk. Every apartment has heat. If there is a problem with your heaters, please alert your Site Manager for Maintenance to assess.

  • If there is a power outage, use battery powered lights. Keep these lights where it is easy to find them.

  • During a power outage do not use candles near flammable materials.

  • Keep candles or lanterns out the of the reach of children.

  • Do not use grills, generators, or other gas-powered appliances in your home or anywhere on the property due the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

  • Acts of nature will happen, and it is best to wait them out versus engaging in any risky behaviors.

  • If you need help building an emergency kit, contact your Resident Services Coordinator
